This was the 4th year it's been held in Christchurch, and the event saw around 10,000 people attend over the weekend.
The expo began in Auckland 11 years ago, and its success brought it to Wellington, the Bay of Plenty, and Christchurch.
And this year it wasn't just cats and dogs on display; the expo boasted hands-on interaction with sheep, rats, turtles, ponies and much more.
After last year's cancellation due to Covid-19, event director Peter Clark said he was so excited to see the expo back up and running.
And, not only was he excited, but the attendees too.
"I'm loving it so much - I really want to adopt!"
"It's so much fun! I love the golden retrievers."
There were over 60 exhibitors at the Christchurch event including pet adoptions, pet toy stalls, healthy pet food brands, pony rides, and animal shows throughout the day.
